>> announcer: welcome to the "wendy's postgame report." here now, bob costas. >>> the redskins ride a seven-game winning streak into the playoffs, where they will host seattle next week. the stars of the game, rg3, threw only 18 times for exactly 100 yards, completing nine, but he did rush six times for 63 and a touchdown. what a night for morris, 33 carries, an even 200 yards and three tds. deangelo hall did not have an interception, but for most of the game, until dez bryant went out with an injury, he had him single covered and he held him to just four catches. so, that trio from the winning redskins are on the field with michele. >> michele: robert, you guys were 3-6. you've won seven straight and now the nfc east division title. what has been behind this streak? >> you know, it's just a mindset change. when you've got guys like this guy right here, pierre garcon, deangelo hall, all these guys coming to work every day, putting it on the line because we knew we couldn't afford to lose one game and we made sure we didn't. >> michele: on a night when you had 100 yards passing, this

. then at 8:00 a.m. eastern, senator ron johnson and bob corker. president obama issued a warning on "meet the press." >> on midnight, december 31st, if congress doesn't act, then everybody's taxes go up. and for the average family, that could mean a loss of $2,000 in income. for the entire economy, that means consumers have a lot less money to make purchases, which means businesses are going to have a lot less customers, which means that they're less likely to hire and the whole economy could slow down at a time when the economy is starting to pick up. >> but after it was all said and done, leaders on the senate floor couldn't get anything done, at least not yet. >> there's no single issue that remains an impossible sticking point. the sticking point appears to be a willingness and interest or frankly the courage to close the deal. i want everyone to know, i'm willing to get this done, but i need a dance partner. >> this morning, we've been trying to come up with some counteroffice to my friend's proposal. we haven't been able to do that. i've had a number of conversations with the presid
correspondent bob bazell. good to see you, bob. when we talked last night, what you said was we were missing a critical piece of information, which is where is the clot, and it's in the vein situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. what can you tell us? >> this is a vein that drains blood from the brain into the central circulation system. the danger with it, because it's so close to the brain, is that if the clot were to grow, it could go inside the brain and become a stroke. that didn't happen according to the doctors. it's appropriate to treat this kind of clot with anti-coagulant therapy. one of the things everybody was talking about before was usually when somebody has a concussion, they get a blood clot called a subdural hematoma and that cannot be treated with that therapy because it presents certain dangers. because this is in a vein outside the brain it can be treated. it's a fairly rare complication with concussions, but it is a possibility. >> obviously, the big concern, that would have been the kind of result of a concussion that killed natasha
need for the quality of life we have to come together. this isn't bob dole. this isn't howard baker. this isn't ronald reagan. these are people that are quite extreme. what's happened is that many republican whose believe in compromise and trying work things out some defeated in primaries and the others are afraid of being defeated in primaries. this deadlock and partisanship, it began in 2007 and 2008 we democrats, who were in control worked with george bush on the t.a.r.p. and a number of things and barack obama got elected and mitch mcconnell announced his number one priority was not to improve the economy or try to improve quality of life but to defeat obama. and so that's the problem. now i do believe in 2012 the public's repudiated that. they re-elected the president, and democrats gained in both houses. we're seeing a painful process of republicans struggling to accept the fact their extremism was repudiated. >> congressman barney frank, it's good to see you tonight, sir. >>> let's get an update where we are. kelly o'donnell joins us and we welcome back nbc's white house corr
director, chuck todd. and later, senators bob corker and tom coburn. and congressman tom cole. plus an update on the condition of secretary of state hillary clinton who is hospitalized with a blood clot. we'll have a live report. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks. >>> the offers that i've made to them have been so fair that a lot of democrats get mad at me. i offered to make some significant changes to our entitlement programs in order to reduce the deficit. they say that their biggest priority is making sure that we deal with the deficit in a serious way. but the way they're behaving is that their only priority is making sure that tax breaks for the wealthiest americans are protected. >> all right. we're taking a look here as the clock counts down as we head over the fiscal cliff. a live look at capitol hill as the sun comes up over washington. they're working, working away there on capitol hill. here with us now from washington, former white house press secretary and former senior adviser to the obama campaign, robert gibbs, who looks like he's on a ski vacation. >
joins me now. bob, walk us through exactly what happened with this blood clot and how dangerous is it? >> reporter: this is a blood clot right behind the ear, right there. in a vein that's very close to the brain. you can see it on a red dot there, where there's a blockage, in a vein that drains blood from the brain. this is not common and not usually the result of a concussion. typically people get clots on the brain itself, and those can't be treated with anti coagulants, but this can be safely cleared away with drugs. the big danger is, if it weren't dissolved, it could grow and cause a stroke. according to her doctors, she has no evidence of the neurological damage that would have resulted from a stroke. >> the doctors are saying she'll recover completely. any idea how long she might be in the hospital? >> reporter: well, kate, experts who are not involved tell me if the treatment is successful, the patient often leaves the hospital within a few days. typically patients need to take it easy for several weeks. but doctors say there is no reason that a person cannot recover complete
of his step dad, bob. the chronicle music critic at the time. austin contributed his eclectic theater and comedy recordings and, well, himself. those of you that know austin know that nothing more need be said. balancing that urbane cultural scene chris invited me to visit his grandfather, where we got to do gold panning from the virgin load of dirt. it was lesson in history from the stevens family. i will never forget what a great experience it was to live with those two guys. moving on to his study habits, everyone knew how brilliant he was, an enlightened manner. he was truly the smartest man in the room but never comported himself that way. he was confident and outgoing. never arrogant. always self-effacing, quick with a laugh or grin. always looking for ways to learn something from everyone else around him. he was no surprise considering chris came from such good stock. chris studied western civilizations and immerses himselfs in cultures and languages and took multiple trips to study abroad in spain, italy, morocco. perhaps most importantly chris knew how to relax and enjoy the
and they are now. >> this particular gun is $#,000. >> an uzi in bob forrest's collection. he is an aviation lawyer from new hampshire. >> as you can see from just the collection here, there is everything from antique black powder muskets all the way up to modern machine guns and everything in between. -- this particular gun is $8,000. >> 92% of those surveyed support laws requiring background checks for anybody wanting to buy a firearm ate gun show like this one. >> why would we be interested in even talking about legislation from that when the gunned are coming from gun shows. >> reporter: closing the so- called gun show loophole, just one of the wishes of the group called code pink. >> we can't protect our children if we can't ban assault weapons and high velocity clips. >> reporter: in two national polls taken since the shootings and sandy hook elementary school, nearly half and in another, nearly 60% of those asked said they support some form of enhanced gun control in this country. >> it is not going to work. it is something that they run to as a symbol and i gun laying on a table is not goin
this morning, bob? >> reporter: well, chris, since we've been talking about this last night we don't have a lot of information. we just have this one statement from secretary clinton's office and the hospital is not saying anything. a lot of doctors are telling me the information in that statement is a bit contradictory. here's why. they say that she has a blood clot that stemmed from a concussion she got several weeks ago. but the problem is, blood clots that stem from concussions don't usually get treated with blood thinning drugs which is what they say they're doing here. either she has a concussion someplace else that may not -- excuse me -- a blood clot someplace else that may not be related to the concussion or there is more to her health that we don't know about. they say they're watching her closely for a couple days. we will have to continue to watch ourselves to see what the situation is but right now all we know is that she is in this hospital. she's under observation. we don't have any idea about what her condition is. and we're just watching and hoping for the best. chris? >> bob b
correspondent. he's at new york presbyterian hospital. bob, what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, chris, we can tell you that it's not exactly clear what is happening with secretary clinton's health. all we have is a statement from her office. the hospital isn't saying anything and the the hospital says that she had this blood clot that stemmed from the concussion and she's being treated with blood-thinning drugs. the problem is that usually when blood clots come from concussions, they can't be treated with blood clots. so, either it's not really related to the concussion and she's got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there's something else going on that we're not being told. and right now, we're just sort of seeking that clarification and hoping for the best as she's being observed, as they say, for the next couple of weeks -- excuse me, for the next couple days, to make sure she's okay. chris? >> bob bazell, thank you for the time. >>> the opening bell just rang on wall street. despite the fiscal cliff deadline looming just hours from now, the markets are opening significantly hig
during a recent bout with the stomach flu. nbc's chief science and health correspondent bob bazell is at new york presbyterian hospital where secretary clinton is being treated. bob, i know this is a story we're all keeping a very close eye on. what's the latest? we know she has a blood clot that came from -- they say from the concussion. we know it's being treated with anti-coagulant drugs. a lot of doctors are puzzled by that series of events because most blood clots that come from a concussion would be in the brain, and they would not be treated with anti-coagulamt drugs. we don't know where it is or what her condition is. there's been no report about what her health status is other than she's under observation for these two days. there's a lot of puzzles here. a lot of people are hoping for the best, but clearly somebody doesn't come into the hospital over -- in the holiday berd just for a routine check-up, so something is going on. we hope to hear more, and we hope to see that she gets out of here in good shape pretty soon. we really -- i wish i had more informati information.
of spending cuts and might actually add to the deficit. tennessee senator bob corker. >> everybody on this body knows we've done nothing -- nothing -- by the time this agreement takes place to reduce a penny of debt in this country. people know that. that's a shame. >> reporter: tonight the two sides are still haggling over the $110 billion worth of spending cuts across-the-board cuts that are set to go into effect tomorrow. they're trying to figure out a way to push those cuts off for at least a couple of months. because of that, rebecca, the senate still hasn't voted and the house can't vote until the senate does. so we're still in limbo. >> nancy cordes, thank you. president obama gave a briefing on the budget talks before an audience that included former campaign volunteers and supporters. major garrett is at the white house tonight. major, good evening. >> good evening, rebecca. the president wants higher income taxes on the wealthy but he had to give up a few things to achieve that. gone, for example, the $250,000 threshold that was part of the presidential successful re-elec
bob scott's family has owned this land, almost 50 acres, since 1902. it was a stage for a bloody chapter in american history that's also part of his family history, the hatfield/mccoy feud. >> my mother's maiden name was hatfield. >> and this is mccoy property. >> randall mccoy, pate trat of the kentucky clan once lived here and his well sit here's on scott's land. his once enemy was hatfield, leader of the clan. this spot is where they finally ended a generation of fussin', fightin', and killing. sparked by a murder right after the civil war. >> mccoy's brother was a northern soldier. he comes back from the war. hatfield and his family fought for the south. word gout out they were out to get him and they eventually went out and get him. >> reporter: between 1865 and 1868 dozens of members of both families were murdered. he showed us various places where the families spilled blood. >> this is where there was a trial over a hog that really began all the hard feelings and all the gunfire. >> reporter: january 1st, 1888. a half dozen hatfields walked six miles from west virginia to
it front and center. george bush in his first term was and then in the second term was defeated. bob dole, john mccain, mitt romney. >> case closed. >> maybe that's not the right way, but -- boy that's the way the media has portrayed it. >> let me add a little color commentary there. let's go back to when you were a candidate for president. >> i knew you were going to bring that up, that painful memory of where that went. >> well we are sitting here because you had a platform that people connected with. you had a campaign with little resources. you fast-forward a few years to the candidate who had a similar message in this last election cycle, rick santorum. again, the same story. no resources, no backing from the establishment, but who almost captured the nomination. same case as you. it was that message that people were motivated by and engaged over. >> were there fewer evangelicals voting this time than four years ago? >> that was the challenge in this election. there was a lot more effort, and i can attest to it because i spent literally about two and a half months on the road working
from bob dole the minority leader or majority leader in the senate at that time saying we will not go down that road they turned that off in the late 1990's and now we are a few hours away from the first sequester in history. >> great do talk to you. thank you. how is main street dealing with this as we wait for the ball do drop in times square? possibly bringing a big tax hike with it? my colleague, lauren, is in the thick of it all in new york city this is historic time in times square to ring in the new year. what is the sentiment like? are people aware what is going on in washington, dc? are they upbeat? downbeat? unaffected? disaffected? what is the sense? >>reporter: it is an interesting year and the new year's eve ball takes on a different level of importance this year. we are right near times square, the crossroads of the world, right, where main street meets washington, dc, meets wall street street and it comes together and you can get a great feel of how real people, the average american, the average global citizen, reacts to things that are if many ways not only confusing a

the united nations, anything with u.n. on it. that went down even with bob dole on the floor, you know, at the senate, coming back, hoping republicans help pass it and would not. >> last thing and quickly, do you have some arguing that, you know what? it's okay passing fewer bills. some argue smaller government and government not intruding in the lives of americans as much. >> no question about it. we have heard it of republicans and conservatives saying the government doesn't need to be doing more but less because it's doing too much, spending too much so the less it does, the better they would say. >> all right. domenico montanaro, thank you. >>> the father of the connecticut shooter's father claimed his body. adam lanza's father claimed the remains last thursday and private arrangements were made over the weekend. you'll know lanza killed 20 first graders and 6 adults at sandy hook elementary school before committing suicide. >>> also, at least nine people killed and more than two dozen injured after a bus plumed down a ramp. it's known to be a dangerous area. >>> a new health compl
tonight they may vote on of this cliff package. senator bob corker saying that the vote is likely, highly likely. senators need to step back and soak up the details of this plan. details of the plan i that the bush tax cuts for people earning $400,000 singles or four under and 50,000 as couples, people who are at that level and more will see those tax hikes go into place. people earning less than that will get a reprieve and not have to pay higher taxes. it would also put in place at two month delay on the sequestered. that is an increase in spending on defense. we could get as in a bill tonight. you will continue to follow the story as it breaks. we're following every twist and turn because it means so much to your wallet. meanwhile, the stock market rallying today on the last day of trading for 2012. the dow. largely on the fiscal cliff. ending the year up 7% which begs the question where we had in 2013 and how you should position yourself. here with their own outlook, one more bullish than the other, editor of money news all to the wealth report and portfolio manager. all-star with you

of the presbyterian hospital. bob, what do we know about secretary clinton's condition and how she is being treated right now? >> richard, we know precious little. we had the one statement yesterday evening from secretary clinton's staff that said she suffered a concussion that was related -- excuse me -- suffered a blood clot related to this concussion. usually when somebody has a blood clot related to a concussion it is in the brain and would not be treated with anticlotting drugs. she is being treated with anticlotting drugs. so maybe she has a blood clot someplace else. we don't know anything -- there have been no statements today either from the hospital here or from the state department or for her personal staff about what her condition is. so, unfortunately, we don't have a lot to report and there is some mystery to this. a lot of doctors tell me that this story doesn't add up. there could be something else wrong with her. we're not saying we know that. the lack of information leads us to have to make those kind of statements because we just don't know what is going on with her health. of co
thompson. she's in for bob this morning. >> the dow is down 54 points. now just down about 34. the market is expected to move in tandem with any headlines across from washington. right now, we don't have the deal, not really a problem for the markets. of course, that could change as we head toward the close and the uncertainty builds. quick check of the european boards today. most of them were closed. those who did trade, i should say, were only traded a half day. the session there was mixed. the concerns over there continue to be will the u.s. go over the fiscal cliff. that kept pressure on some of the indices there. we're keeping watch on the bank stocks right now. we've seen a dourn-around in those there. futures popped earlier half an hour before the open. they have opened broadly to the down side in today's session. you guys were talking about it earlier, another positive reading on the pmi out of china. that seems to be lending some support to the material stocks in today's session, as you take a look at the shanghai composite, which is closing at a six-month high, or closed the new
. the senator from tennessee, bob corker, ribbing the president and chastising him for what he just calls his press conference. let's listen for a moment. >> without objection. >> mr. president -- >> senator from maryland. >> mr. president, i rise to speak on behalf of what is going on here today as the new chair of the -- >> okay, so tax hikes, it looks like tax hikes instead of affecting 98% of all americans will affect only the 5% of top earners. does that mean everybody is free and clear? not exactly. tomorrow, your paycheck will likely shrink. and that's with or without the fiscal cliff. that's because the payroll tax cut expires at midnight. right now, it does not look as if congress plans to extend it. the 4.2% you pay into social security will now go up to 6.2% of your salary. lawmakers have been so consumed by the fiscal cliff that it appears little was done to extend the 2010 payroll tax cuts, put in place by president obama two years ago in order to boost the economy. so what does it mean to your wallet? here is how much less you'll bring home if it expires. paychecks shrink $50 a
the board tax hikes with dramatic cuts in military and domestic spending. joining us now bob cusack the manage evening editor of the hill the. great to have you here today. >> great to be here. >> many americans are frustrated that congress has taken us to the brink once again with little or no progress. what are you hearing at this moment? is there progress at this time? >> well, we are hearing that there has been progress between vice president biden and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. still we are nearly 12 hours from the cliff. we don't have a bill. there has actually been a stunning lack of urgency on cant toll hill. on the default showdown, the government shut down there was more urgency. here there just isn't that urgency, maybe because the markets haven't been the roller coaster we thought they would be. eventually people will see less money in their paychecks unless a deal is reached and that could cause some kind of panic that could move congress. so far congress has just not moved and neither has the president. they haven't been able to get a deal. >> reporter: we
